The first pint of Windmill Hill Farm pure honey prior to final filtering. Windmill Hill Farm honey is non pasteurized honey straight from the bees to you! The bees feed on an abundance of natural Michigan wildflowers and apple trees supplemented with some local clover fields. If you're interested in trying some of our honey, you may find it convenient to visit one of our retail outlets. Or, you can visit our online store.
Bees will forage in a 5 mile area around their hive. As a result, most Michigan honey is "wildflower" meaning it originates from a whole variety of plants. Our honey is predominately alfalfa, clover, maple, dandelion, rape, goldenrod, soy bean, thistle, etc. As a result, it has a robust sweet taste that is more flavorful than grocery store honey and not as strong as some varietal honeys.
- Natural non pasteurized
- No chemicals added
- Warmed and strained but not cooked or filtered
We've had our honey analyzed by the USDA and we're GREAT!! The results are given in detail on the attached page. Of the over 150 pesticides tested, we were below detectable levels in all except 2. These two were Coumaphos and Coumaphos oxon. These are pesticides used by us and others to treat bees for Varroa mites. We are at 1.2 and 2.8 ppb respectively for these two chemicals. The EPA set tolerance level for coumaphos is 100 ppm. As a result of this analysis we no longer use coumaphos and haven't for years.
